Campaign successfully funded on: 06 Apr,2019
Let’s skip the bigger and bolder statements and get straight to the point.
The AUB Rally Paper is an event which has been happening for years now. The 2019 edition occurs on April 6 and 7. It involves 2000+ participants and requires multiple abilities such as logic, creativity, and physical strength. The first three teams receive prizes of $10,000, $5,000, and $3,000 which go to a non-profit organization.
This year’s edition is being prepared for more than 2 months now and multiple costs are involved, with a very high total budget. Although the USFC committee at AUB covers a significant chunk of the expenses, a large part needs to be covered by sponsors. As we all know, the economic situation of the country is not at its best right now and companies are not willing to sponsor such events (more than 50 companies rejected our proposal). Although we already secured some sponsorship deals for now; an important amount consisting of 8,000$ still needs to be covered. Now, a simple solution would be to reduce the prize money. However, we always believed in NGOs to build our country and we think it would be a shame to reduce these prices. Moreover, the different teams involved work for weeks prior to the event in order to win this prize for their respective NGOs.
This is why we created this crowdfunding campaign in order to collect the remaining $8,000. The concept is quite simple: with a small amount donated by every individual, the goal can be reached and we can have our rally paper as scheduled.
We are counting on you for this! Let’s do this!
